Letter to ‘Lundenary’

THE SCHOOLMASTER’S ABROAD.

The following singular letter has been received at our post
office, via Liverpool, and is superscribed “The
Honbl.[Honourable?] Post-master, County Town of Londonderry,
Ireland.” Perhaps some of our rustic genealogists will be
able to throw light on the subject of it :-

*& Notes on “lundenary”

There is no priority number for eleven. “Lundenary” is an invention of PinkWrite to fill this gap, built on the word “lunar” from “moon”, based on the idea of “the solo in orbit”. On research, the word appeared in all lowercase as a misspelling of “Londonderry” in an 1833 letter to Ireland, purportedly concerning one’s own whereabouts, a schoolmaster. In circumstance, the word is all too fitting, misspelled from a missing schoolmaster filling a gap for a word that never existed because it was never used. The “u” is long.

Reference: What comes after primary, secondary, tertiary?

The sequence continues with quaternary, quinary, senary, septenary, octonary, nonary, and denary, although most of these terms are rarely used. There’s no word relating to the number eleven but there is one that relates to the number twelve: duodenary.
